Costa Rica Travel Guide

"Famously declared one of the happiest places in the world, Costa Rica has protected over 40% of its land as national parks and produces 99% of its power from clean, renewable sources."

Pura vida is a popular phrase you will hear the locals saying all the time on your holiday to Costa Rica. It can be used as a greeting, a farewell, an affirmation, a way to express gratitude or satisfaction or a way of describing someone. Broadly speaking it can be described as an expression of eternal optimism and has become Costa Rica’s unofficial motto. Relaxed and easy-going, it is not difficult to see why in recent years sun-soaked, tropical Costa Rica has become one of Latin America’s most popular destinations. Although a small country there is a wide variety of climates and landscapes from the gushing rivers, waterfalls and coffee plantations of the Central Valley to the jungle canals on the Caribbean coast and the cooler cloud forest in Monteverde.
